“A great summer recipe. I got this from the cookbook, Get Grilling.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups cooked pork, shredded bbq grilled or 1 12 cups cooked chicken, grilled
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1 (12 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
  • 2 medium tomatoes, ripe, roughly chopped
  • 2 pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 12 cup fresh cilantro, loosely packed, roughly chopped, plus additional for garnish
  • 7 ounces white corn tortilla chips
  • 13 cup sour cream, plus additional
  • sour cream, for garnish
  • 12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Toss the meat with 1 cup of BBQ sauce and set aside.
  2. Coarsely mash the beans in a bowl with the lime juice, about half the Cajun Rub, and salt to taste. In another bowl, toss the tomatoes with the jalapenos and the 1/2 cup cilantro. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Scatter half the chips in a baking dish. Scatter the meat, beans, and 1/3 cup sour cream, and about half the tomato mixture over the chips. Cover with remaining chips, then scatter the remaining tomatoes, sauce, and Cajun Rub evenly over the chips. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over all.
